How We Can Help

We work hand in hand to help all senior citizens thrive! Each senior is unique in his or her abilities and needs. Friendship Centers seeks to meet each senior where they are. Person-centered planning allows us to focus on the desires or goals of the senior and then work to address those needs with information, services, and opportunities.

Check Us Out

The primary reason people access the Friendship Centers in Petoskey and Brutus is to meet with friends, old and new, as they participate in activities that enrich their lives. No membership required.
